Well I didn’t really get time to write live over the weekend as my initial thoughts was, but here is an update about what happened over the weekend. Friday night was really a buzz killer for me, my sleeping bag was way too cold and I did have difficult catching heat all night in my tent. But some of the fellow pilot invited me to stay at their house for the next night, and there I seeped like a baby.

Flying was really nice, everybody was talking about they didn’t had had any opportunity to practice and that they where feeling inexperienced and unready, but despite that the flying was awesome and most of the news pilot was flying great.
There was 28 pilots attending in all classes, and that is very good compared to the size of the country. I end last in 3D sports class what a bummer, I was not good I had problems with my flying and problems with my helicopter and some very bad weeks up to the competition with no preparation didn’t help me do the flying any better, but there is one good thing about it, it can only get better for me in 2009.

Here are some pictures, which are the only pictures my, camera ran out of power(back to preparation). But I will post some videos later or some of the coming days, subscribe to my feed to keep you self updated. There is some nice flying videos on my camera coming soon.

RC heli canopy lamp

Two reasons to get a new canopy

1. To have a new painted canopy
2. Get a new lamp in the man cave

When I can´t fly my mind gets board, and when my mind gets bored I get funny ideas. That is when I got a funny idea to make my current canopy in to a ceiling lamp, forget about the IKEA lamp, homemade canopy lamp that is what we need.

Here is a picture just an example, just create a hole for the wire at the tip of the canopy, and then you have a cool lamp for the man cave.
